Iniko at a lizard - cause for concern?

Hello all! It has been a little while since I’ve been on this thread but I need a little guidance. My night so skilled hunter a Iniko caught her first lizard today, and before I realized what she had done she had eaten it. My vet is not open on Saturdays right now, so I need guidance. Is there cause for concern for her eating a skink?
Everything online is very mixed. Need I be concerned??

I have some very grave concerns regarding this. There is little chance that you will be able to revive the lizard or even recover their remains. Condolences to the Lizards Friends and family.

Just keep an eye on your cat, make sure they are taking on water and eating regularly. First sign they aren’t, I would get them to the vet.

Hi there
Fortunately lizards not a problem here in Scotland, but I do know that vigilance is required if they consume things like snails, frogs etc. As John pop says, make sure she is keeping well hydrated, no harm in calling emergency vet for advice. Good luck.

Most lizards that I am aware of are not poisonous, and many cats have eaten many lizards in the past. Just keep an eye on her and as long as she is behaving and eating normally, she should be fine. However, as noted above, there is no harm calling the ER vet just to be on the safe side.
